Black & White Pagne Tissé Cushion. The Jeriko


We love this classic black and white handwoven design. The weave is delicate and textured, a complex pattern only hand woven by a master weaver in Dakar. This is a very unique cushion that would work effortlessly to add a touch of simple elegance to a living space.

About the fabric

Pagne Tissé - handwoven fabric on traditional looms from the Manjak people  of Southern Senegal and Northern Guinea.

The beauty in this rich and complex weave lies not only in its look and feel, but also in knowing the exceptional amount of time it take to produce. It takes three days to set up the loom, connecting the hundreds of threads to make up the intricate design and then two weavers to manage it. An experienced weaver will take a day to weave 3-5 meters. It’s labour intensive art form that is becoming increasingly rare, a fading tradition that Tisserand Dakar seeks to promote and preserve with their beautiful and unique fabric lines.
